> Can I postpone my jury duty?
Yes, however you can only postpone jury duty one time for either 60 or 90 days. If you choose to postpone your jury duty, a new group number will be assigned to you. Please make a note of the new group number for future reference.

> What about my employer?
State Law (A.R.S. § 21-236) prohibits an employer from discharging, harassing, or discriminating against an employee for being absent to serve as a juror, provided the employee gives reasonable notice of their scheduled jury duty. Employers are not required to pay employees while on jury duty; however, many employers elect to provide compensation. You will receive documentation of your jury duty, as some employers require proof of service.

> Do I get reimbursed?
You will receive a mileage reimbursement check, unless you use public transportation and choose to receive one bus pass instead. The rate for mileage reimbursement is set by law and the roundtrip distance is based on the mileage from the center of your zip code to the Court. If you are selected to serve on a jury, you will be paid $12 per day, which is set by law.

> My address is not in Phoenix so why did I get a summons?
